Outside the clouds build as another cold front moves in, the wind picks up and the temperature begins to drop rapidly. Winter is upon us and in the high desert, winter is both uncomfortable and thankfully brief. While we rarely have days where the temperatures reach freezing they do occur. Like the weather there has been a recent noticeable chill in the air among those who claim to embrace and love freedom.
With the upswing in violent action by state thugs against those who desire freedom there has been a radical surge in anti state rhetoric from individuals for whom there exists no in between or possibility of good within the evil. I am writing this today because I believe that I and many others have been approaching things in a manner that does not promote good. Recently I have begun questioning my beliefs because I believe quite strongly in making certain what I believe is true.
The system of government as it applies to modern states is evil at its core. No real good has ever come of this government, otherwise known as state. However, there is a need for governance, as in tribal and or town approaches to government. This is natural, most animal species have tribes, groups or some type of familial unit meant for both protection and mutual benefit. Humans are animals, possibly more evolved in some ways but still simply animals.
The various entities within the entity of government are also evil at their core. They cannot promote freedom simply because government as it is commonly defined is at complete odds with freedom as it is defined. As a result a military, police force and or criminal justice system cannot promote freedom or protect it. Essentially any organization within government must work to promote governments interests which are always to ensure its own survival.
The important things to remember are quite simple, with very few exceptions we have all at some point been involved in or supported the idea of government/state. Remember this and stop being the person that you detested when you supported the state. We humans tend to strike out when we are faced with the demise of the ideas that we once held a firm belief in. This never changes among humans and is called, cognitive dissonance. Remember that you also were once affected with this and often lashed out at those who were attempting to show you the light. does not mean everyone involved is also evil. Most of them have not had the exposure to truth that you have. Remember this when you lash out at a uniform. Remember that this is exactly what the uniforms are doing when they lash out at you for being counter culture!
Stop and think, if you are no longer questioning why you believe, maybe it is time to do so? Question always question, and please by all that is holy to whomever is reading this, learn to form arguments rationally using your own thoughts. You cannot be truly free until you are capable of thinking for yourself! And no, building your beliefs into a new religion or promoting a new group as a replacement for the old one is not thinking for yourself.
